Restaurants you may also likeView all
Well I booked this place and turned up at the venue to find out it was permanently closed so yeah not the best date night I must say!
Really enjoyed the tapas, the service and the overall experience. Tapas came a bit fast but I think that was down to us being early (6.30) and ordering all the dishes up front. Should have ordered just two then ordered more. Great menu and good quality cooking
Really delicious food and attentive staff. Asked if I could have a table that would be able to tuck my babies car seat out the way, which they did! Plenty of space. Only thing they didn’t have a changing table, but was able to use the disabled toilets instead which was perfect anyway.
A very pleasant evening.
Absolutely loved it here, the food was excellent and the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Great atmosphere and will definitely be returning soon. A little bit pricey but totally worth it, you will not be disappointed.
Our first visit with my daughter..
Very well received and looked after, terrific veggy options .
All the food was excellent,staff gave a warm welcome, friendly and very helpful.
My daughter has just finished her exams and I wanted to give her a special evening…
Vida Comida did exactly that !!
Highly recommended and we will be back.
Super evening and great atmosphere.
Was very impressed by the array of dishes on the menu, I noticed you offer special offers during the week but perhaps a discount applied at the weekend every now and again might be good?
We arrived at twelveish,it was very quiet but such a great ambience. It was a sunny day so we sat outside under the cherry tree. Then inside for our meals, by which time the place was filling up and was a really happy atmosphere. Young Jake behind the bar did a sterling job keeping bar and food
orders going and the food is great also.
Brilliant place and we will certainly be back
That's a promise Jake not a threat!!!
Really lovely venue with great staff. Could do with some more vegetarian and vegan options for those of us who don't eat meat or fish. Really that's the only thing that stops me having tapas more often.
Food was lovely, service was awful. No one took our food order, didn’t check to see if we wanted anything else once food had arrived and then when we came to pay our food couldn’t be found on the till and we were expected to list everything which we had ordered
Such a charming, friendly place! Great atmosphere & delicious food. Thank you!
The most delicious food. Fun place and very nice staff. Pretty setting outside
The staff were very nice and friendly. There was a good range of options (particularly for vegetarians) on the menu and the set lunch offer was good value. The food itself was also nice.
The only slight downside was that while the restaurant was nice, it was pretty cold and for this reason we ate quite quickly and decided not to stick around for another drink and pudding.
We would return if we were in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Excellent in every way, thank you.
The food is immense, this is truly a hidden little gem for Sherborne.
Absolutely loved this visit. Great service and great good. This standard is normal across all of our visits however the ambience today just made it. Busier the better it seems.
Always enjoy a visit to Vida Comida, especially when a special family gathering
A bit of Spain in Sherborne ! This restaurant never disappoints. the staff are always charming and efficient.
A brave attempt to introduce the tapas scene to Sherborne. Really worth going to. Great food, and not expensive. Quick, friendly service.
The food was really delicious. On first thoughts a bit pricey but, then, given the excellent food worth the cost.
Poor value for money. Really noisy due to very large party next to us. Literally couldn’t hold a conversation
Good atmosphere. Quick service and plenty of choice. Only thing is that the dishes all come at once and it would be better to stagger them in my opinion. You feel like you have to rush your eating. Maybe order some dishes and eat. Then order another lot! But we like it here and have been several times.
Very good Menu and good range of food
Would come back
We had a lovely lunch there for 8 people of all ages. Great service and really good food. The staff were so friendly and we all loved it. I hope to go back soon.
good and speedy lunchtime service, tasty food and a very nice cocktail. Will be back
we were at Group of 5, and ordered several tapas dishes. All courses came after 5-10 min, and was abviously already ready made. Cheese was Cold, ham was hard and not very interesting.
Fried potatoes salso was much to spicy. Overall not too bad, but did still not meet Our expectations.
We enjoyed the meal and the place had a nice feel to it. Tapas were good but it is an expensive restaurant and I wonder if long term they can retain their clientele. Service was good and waitresses were attentive. We did not have to wait long for the various dishes to arrive.
Underwhelming food in general.
The service was fabulous.
Nothing wrong with any dish but only the chips were outstanding and at £3.50 per portion, they should be.
Very friendly, clean. Just lacking individuality and love where the food was concerned.
Expensive too IMHO.
Excellent meal served by happy and busy staff. Started off slow but built up to a great service and knowledge shown by the staff.
We first came two years ago before the film festival and have been back many times since, good food and atmosphere
Very friendly and helpful. Delicious food. Good value.
Fantastic food, quick and attentive service. Great cocktail menu. Lots of choice for vegetarians. Would definitely recommend.
As the restaurant had few customers we did not mind seating on the end of a very long table.Would go again.Loved the food and atmosphere.
Food was fantastic, service was great had a live band not so much was too loud but would go back might be a new family favourite
Enjoyed the meal though portiins small for cost of each dish when sharing still great place and nice atmosphere . Would be nice to hear live music occasionally to comolete the atmosphere
We have lunched there a few times now. Our daughter who has Spanish connections was impressed with the food. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Great food and friendly service. Really enjoyed this place.
Aaa overall very good but one of the waitresses a little unhelpful
Excellent food, very friendly staff. Loved the way that the tapas was brought out in stages so things that should be hot were still hot when we ate them. Liked the Spanish wine and the music was perfect for that setting.
Excellent choice of food and drinks this tapas restaurnat is a great place for lunch or evenng meal
